It’s been over two months. Why hasn’t Trudeau followed through on his threat?
Over two months ago, Justin Trudeau and the PMO threatened to sue Andrew Scheer.
They said that Scheer had made unacceptable accusations about Justin Trudeau relating to the SNC-Lavalin scandal.
The threat was meant to stop Scheer from claiming that Trudeau had tried to interfere with the justice system and the potential (now real) prosecution of the well-connected company.
Yet, after the Liberals issued the threat, Andrew Scheer didn’t back down.
Instead, he doubled-down, and repeated the same accusations the PMO was threatening to sue him for.
He repeated the accusations in Question Period, and outside of the House of Commons, where he doesn’t have legal immunity.
Yet, despite Scheer’s repeated repetition of the same claims the Liberals said were slanderous, there has been no lawsuit.
In Question Period, Andrew Scheer pointed out how Trudeau is still “all talk.”
“It’s been 61 days since Justin Trudeau threatened to sue me. He’s all talk. He still refuses to testify under oath for his role in his SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal cover-up.”

Trudeau’s response, as you can expect, was pathetic.
He brought up all the usual lines, blaming Harper, fake news, misinformation, populism, blah blah blah. He tried to claim that Scheer had been “put on notice.”
But if Scheer had been “put on notice,” why is he still repeating all the same claims?
Why hasn’t the lawsuit been filed?
The reality is that Trudeau tried to scare and intimidate Scheer into silence on the SNC-Lavalin scandal, and failed miserably.
Because Trudeau has no good answers for the terrible actions of his government, all he can do is try and scare people. And those who refuse to be scared, and who continue to stand against the Trudeau government, are what Trudeau fears most.
